Who: Formed in 2018, Brooklyn’s Gustaf have built a kind of buzz
that feels like it comes from a different era. The art punk 5 piece
rapidly established a reputation as one of New York’s “hardest
working… and most reliably fun bands”
FFO: Talking Heads, Television, LCD Soundsystem, Bodega

Pick: BOOK

About: “About the fallacy and fight of getting ahead vs being a head. It is
seeking validation in the wrong places and from the wrong people,” The hook,
“I got ahead, I got a head” is a fun little taunt that we find either being thrown
in our face or coming out our mouth. Everyone gets their moment up on the
pedestal and everyone gets their turn falling off of it. Whether it’s up or down,
‘Book’ is about accepting whatever level you’re on,
” says singer Lydia Gammil.

Turn Up The Volume: This is awesome. This is it. 4 flaming Amazons and
one boy with a head-spinning Strokes riff, vocal B-52‘s razzmatazz and sassy
riot grrl swagger upfront. Served with some early Parquet Courts jingle-jangle
jaggedness and what you get is 120 seconds of love shack excitement.

This is awesome. This is it.

Dance this mess around here…
